Hey. I am enjoying my N8 for about 1 and a half month. it is really excellent. I have the blue one. I dont know why the N8s here in the Philippines cost differently. based on colors. The blue one is the most expensive one. The black and the silver are the cheap ones. Anyway, Im so excited for the release of P.R. 2.0
I guess it will have the better browser, portrait qwerty, split screen, better gallery, more hd games( oh the apps in ovi store are growing, i mean more useful apps), landscape dialer, search for music, cached web pages with forward and backward buttons, configuration of view for functions,(grid and list), navigation using address from contact book, Bug fixes: WLAN search, the functionality of not saving the message for SMS, keyboard, pdates for email box, camera, homescreen, animation effects…

2.) offline widget menu-offline widgets
3.) set Wlan only

The app with no problems to my device is

bullzeye, 14 Jan 2011so what you are saying is that i should get a temporary mtn sim and test everything on the N8 ... moreYes. Test it with a mtn sim for the 1st 7 days. Dont change sp's until the 1st 7 days are over. After that you can decide to port if you want. Mtn is great. I ported from voda like 4 years ago and i'm happy with them thus far. Dont take out the plastic covers until the 7 days are over. Including the back camera plastic. The photos may appear slightly blurry but not too bad though with the plastic on the lens. I guess you're getting the black/grey colour then? I got the silver/white on voda. I would have liked the blue (or orange!) but you know the drill....we always slow in getting everything here! Hey btw, i got my current phone for 2 months now and going really well. 4 other guys got this as well at work after seeing my one and theirs are working just fine too. Must have been my bad luck with the 1st 2 phones.
N8 PR 1.1 IS COMING FRIDAY.

I check this forum everyday because I have gotten a lot of useful information about the N8 here. You can post any question here for me. I spent a year in Jamaica. It's a beautiful country (lower Kingston can be difficult though).
Is it possible for you to post with a name, Jamaica Guy is ok if you don't want to give your real name.
Hey Trinidad guy who made post about Ovi Maps earlier-are you there? This is Jamaica guy. Need to ask you some questions about gps in the caribbean? Need contact info or answers on this page. You there?
Mac, 14 Jan 2011You would lose your warranty for swapping sims from one sp to another. I didnt care and just s... moreso what you are saying is that i should get a temporary mtn sim and test everything on the N8 for the first 7 days to see if i cant find anything that is wrong with the phone and then i can put in the voda sim?
i dont mind switching because there is the MTN number for life so i can keep my number even if i switch from sp's.
i also like MTN more, free facebook and nice service.

Just some info for those that use the fm transmitter. If you are transmitting music via the music player to a radio and prior to switching the transmitter on you had the music volume set to zero volume, mute or off; then when you switch the transmitter on without the volume on then the music doesnt play on the radio. If you switch the transmitter off and on it doesnt help. With the transmitter on it doesnt allow you to turn up the volume on the phone as displays 'use the volume on the radio' - something like that. Hence you have to turn the transmitter off. The music player will still be playing so turn up the volume and then now turn the transmitter back on. Hope this small info helps cos i panicked when my phone wasnt transmitting music.
